"Tonight the Bottle Let Me Down" as written by and Merle Haggard....
Each night I leave the barroom when it's over not feeling any pain at closin' time
But tonight your mem'ry found me much too sober
I couldn't drink enough to get you off my mind
Tonight the bottle let me down let your memory come around
The one true friend that I thought I'd found tonight the bottle let me down

I've always had a bottle I could turn to lately I've been turning every day
But the booze don't take effect the way it used to
I keep a hurtin' in an old familiar way
Tonight the bottle let me down

Tonight the bottle let me down
